No Matches. Press ESC to hide auto-complete

S

Attempt to enter a label that does not exist and the screen pops up "No Matches. Press ESC to hide auto-complete" which blocks quite a bit of the screen.

this screen won't go away hitting ESC.
Moving to any other part of the program, it remains blocking view

Click on the X to close the window and bring Todoist back up - still there blocking screen.

The entire process must be killed and restarted to get rid of this.

another way,...

IF you can you get focus back to the task description field (a bit tricky) and can delete the incorrect text, eg "@newlabel"...

then the screen will go away without having to kill the process.

Hello Stephen,

I can't reproduce either of these issues. I enter a project, click on "+ Add task", type:

test @some

See the "No matches" window as I don't have any label with this name, I hit ESC and the auto-complete drop-down disappears. I hit ESC again and the task input field closes.

That said, I can't recreate a situation in where ESC would not close either the auto-complete field or in any way show any menu that's not possible to close until I close the app.

Please try to use the "Logout" option through the TD icon in the tray which will clear the app's cache. Also, make sure you're using the latest version of our app - try to reinstall it.


Best regards,
David

It's working differently now for me... Esc works... and, it also just adds it as a new label

wonder if this is related to the other issue (where projects disappear) that only happens when the app enters some unknown state.

How do I know if I'm using the latest venison of the app? I can look up my version, but don't see any means to determine if it is the current latest version.

Stephen,

Please clarify - what issue are you still experiencing now? The fact that a label that didn't exist before gets added is not a bug, it always worked like this - you don't have to create the label in the Labels list, you can just type it in.

You can check the version by right-clicking on the TD icon in the system tray and choosing "About". The best way to make sure you're using the latest one is to delete it and then download and install the latest one from https://todoist.com/windows


Best regards,
David

Im not going to download and reinstall every day on the chance there might
be a newer version. It would make more sense for you to publish the
version or better yet let the software tell me when there is a new version.

Label note. Was not suggesting adding label from task was a bug. The bug is
virtually locking the interface when the esc key is not being read.

Im report ing a lot of issues because I thought it would be helpful. Im
going to back off on these smaller issues if you're not needing them
reported.

Stephen,

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I only asked you to reinstall the app once now to make sure that it's not a caching or installation issue. Normally, our app always will notify you if an update is available and allow you to install the update right-away. Again, I only asked for the purpose of reproducing this issue.

We do appreciate every report of even the smallest issue, but once again - I just asked to clarify it that's what you've experienced because I couldn't and still can't reproduce it so to prevent a misunderstanding I wanted to make sure we're talking about the same thing.


Best regards,
David
